The Waste Way

There’s only ever been one way we do things at Waste and that’s ‘the more you give, the more you get back’. These four pillars form the cultural backbone of Waste, and 14 years on have never steered us wrong.

Be Brave Make it better Be kind Own your shit

Wasters with Benefits

So we talked about the more you give... Well, as a Waster, here’s a few of the things you can expect coming back your way:

Value
EARLY FINISH FRIDAYS

Throughout February & August depending on your workload, if you usually finish at 5pm, it’s now 3:30pm. Too busy to log off early? Speak to your line manager and get it moved to another day. Result.

Value
FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS

While a few wasters have chosen to come to the office on some days (completely voluntary!), a lot of us are still working from home. Make your workday your own with flexible start times & schedules.

Value
CHRISTMAS & NY CLOSE

Nobody wants to work over Christmas, especially us, so we don’t. Ranging from 1 - 2 weeks, our Out Of Office is on during the festivities. And as it’s the time for giving, we don’t take it out of your holiday entitlement.

Value
BIRTHDAYS OFF

Birthdays are best spent in the pub or eating cake somewhere nice, not in the office - so take the day off! If your birthday falls on the weekend, no worries. You can take it on the Friday before or Monday after.

Value
VOLUNTEER DAYS

We’ll be offering up to 2 days per year for you to give back and volunteer your time to a charity or community. Whether it’s fundraising or organising donations, you’ll be able to do this either individually or as part of a team.

Value
CYCLE TO WORK

To encourage healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution, we’ll be able to loan you a bike as a tax-free benefit. Get pedalin’!

Value
FRIDAY DRINKS & SNACKS

If and when you choose to come to the office - when the clock strikes 4, it’s cork poppin’ time.

Value
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCEPROGRAMME

EAP offers access to confidential guidance with face-to-face counselling if required. The service can be accessed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and can help with financial, work, general and medical, family or personal issues.

Value
PARTIES

Christmas and summer parties you'll want to post about (hopefully in person, but we also know how to throw together an online extravaganza).

D&I Statement

Our D&I Report

Us Wasters are committed to diversity, equality and inclusion. For us diversity and inclusion are not just a tick-boxing activity, but a chance for us to make long-term meaningful change. A diverse workforce means that we’re able to unlock our ability to innovate, be creative, be better problem solvers and provide an inclusive environment for everyone and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.

By making ourselves accountable, these measures will go some way to make a real difference in diversity and inclusion, but this is only the start. We can do more… and we will.
